Kerala's Backwaters and Fishing Nets
TOUR FROM 8:30 TO 4 + 1 HOUR BONUS
April 27, 2019
THIS WAS A VERY WELL ORGANIZED TOUR THANKS TO MUZIRIS HERITAGE TOURS AND GUIDE SHARM WHO WAS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. THE HOUSEBOAT TOUR WAS VERY INTERESTING AND THE INDIAN LUNCH SERVED WAS EXCELLENT AND GENEROUS. WE WERE ALSO ABLE TO VISIT HISTORICAL ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI CHURCH BUILT IN 1503 AS WELL AS JEWTOWN WHERE THE OLDEST SYNAGOGUE IN THE COMMONWEALTH WAS BUILT IN 1568. THERE WAS ALSO TIME TO VISIT A COOPERATIVE HANDICRAFT SHOP TO BUY WITHOUT UNDUE SALES PRESSURE. WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND SHORE EXCURSIONS GROUP FOR THIS TOUR AS WELL AS THE OTHER FIVE TOURS UNDERTAKEN THROUGH SEG.

Great tour and a good price

Everything worked well on this port side tour including the timely pick up, great itinerary and very good guide. Lots of useful history was communicated during the drive to the boat launch - a drive that was very memorable given the informal road rules. The boat ride through the backwaters was excellent including a very tasty lunch. The brief visit to the Chinese fishing nets was also pretty cool. The only fault we found, one that is typical of many tours, is the final visit to a high end store that was of very little interest to most of the participants. Overall, a very good day!

Enjoyed houseboat tour of backwaters. Included lunch, wonderful scenery. Saw the fishing nets, toured the old city and viewed the outside of the synagogue which was closed for Passover. Highly recommend this tour to people who want to see something different than regular tourist attractions.

Great staff, great itinerary, great meal. The boat was really nice, an entire houseboat for our small group. It was covered and had a fan so the heat wasn’t too much. It was interesting to see life for the Kerala people (middle class) along the river. We went for a nice walk to a church from the boat. Our group decided not to see the other church on the itinerary and went to a spice shop instead. The fishing nets were really interesting too. All in all a great day.

The arrangement is really good and the House boat is clean and tidy. We have a very lovely trip and highly recommended it as its almost half the price that the cruise company charged
